It will be the eighth final appearance by Nigeria, who were champions in 1980, 1994 and 2013, and the fourth by 1992 and 2015 title winners Ivory Coast.
Primewave gathered that after the seesaw struggle for supremacy in Bouake, Ivory Coast continued a remarkable comeback in the tournament by defeating DR Congo.
Borussia Dortmund star, Sebastien Haller, was the 65th-minute match-winner as his boot connected with a cross and the ball struck the ground, then rose over goalkeeper Lionel Mpasi and into the net.
